Hippo Factory ONGOING WEEKLY CLASSES occur every week on the same day and time.
Learn drawing fundamentals that will serve as the foundation of all your art work. Learn to break down a scene into shapes, drawing from large shapes to small shapes. We cover tone, composition, proportion, flow and value. Media used is charcoal / pencil.
Brian will teach you a simple step-by-step process to painting alla prima portraits. He will be going over composition, drawing, likeness, organizing your palette, color mixing, value, edges, and producing a completed portrait. A limited Zorn palatte will be taught. The palette consists of only 4 colors and is a very suitable limited palette for portrait painting. Working with a limited palette is challenging and rewarding, it is a great way for beginners to learn about the variety of colors one can achieve using only a few tubes of paint while advanced painters can mix things up a bit, by working with a restrictive palette. Through Brian's demo and one on one instruction and chats, you will explore the benefits of working within limits. Students will work from either provided photos or a live model.
